Sam Lenger asked:
In the family they used to refer to my gfather as a "Brisker". This
apparently refers to a city or region.
Can you help me find out what "brisker" means?
Brisker also means follows of the great Rabbi, Chaim Soloveitchik (I hope
my spelling is correct) >from Brisk. He encouraged a particular style of
Talmudic study within the Lithuanian Yeshiva world.
